Hindi domain name to bridge digital divide

India is preparing to launch the dot-Bharat domain name in Hindi in May with the aim of bridging the digital divide in the country

New Delhi: India is preparing to launch the dot-Bharat domain name in Hindi in May with the aim of bridging the digital divide in the country. The move will enable organizations and individuals to register their website addresses in Hindi—and later more local languages—making them more accessible to a large proportion of Indians who aren’t familiar with English.

While experts applaud the move as a first step in the right direction, they maintain that the entire ecosystem—comprising software, hardware and content—has to come together to make the Internet truly inclusive. India currently has close to 100 million Internet users out of a total population of 1.2 billion, of whom 74% are literate, according to Census 2011.

About 11% of the country’s population understands English, while 40% is well-versed in some form of Hindi, according to Census 2001. Most of the big powers, including China and Russia, have had their internationalized domain names (IDNs) for several years now.
